Rush lays out the thesis that employment and the economy doesn’t matter in the 2012 campaign. But he doesn’t tell us what WILL decide the election. Like so many other Rush monologues, I wait breathlessly for Rush to lead the way, only to be left at the altar. We all have a list of things that our candidate should do, but Rush is not laying them out.
Rush has been getting lazy. I’ll hear him on the radio and then when I get off work I’ll read the same points he was making on the various websites.
He’s also too gloomy. We need to be firing up the troops and not depressing them. He’s always had a dark cloud hovering over him and he seems compelled to be overly pessimistic at least a couple of times per week.
It’s true we are all dead in the end, but human nature doesn’t change and the youth that seems to have Rush worried today is no worse than Rush and I were at that same age 40-50 years ago.
Rush either needs therapy, or has some intense distractions, or doesn’t care anymore about the show, or is on drugs. He can’t just say something, it has to be drawn out to the most boring degree. Something is haywire. Perhaps it is his wife, or some other distraction.
